"Guesstimate" my score increase

I know that noone can guess a score increase, but I would like some estimations please. Here is my current situation. Seven old medical collections from over four years ago. One judgement from six years ago. 9 student loans that have been reporting for the past couple years always on time. Two credit cards currently. One has a 30 day late from 4 months ago. The other one has always been on time. CC 1, 800 on it 900 limit. CC 2, 200 on it 250 Limit. Current score is 560. Guess score changes for the following (if any)
a) card company has agreed to erase 30 day late from four months ago.
b) i pay the cards down to like 5% utilization
c) i have to pay off the judgement to qualify for my FHA loan.
 
Any guesses??? Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: "Guesstimate" my score increase

Have you tried the score simulator?

Current Score: 620EQ/614EX/612TU As of 01/2013
Goal Score: 700+ across the boards

Re: "Guesstimate" my score increase

I put in my transunion score and this simulation:
 

"This simulation was based on your paying down 90%-100% of your overall credit card balances over a period of 24 months. In general, your score will be helped as your credit history lengthens and you establish FICO® healthy behavior. So this score simulation took into account both your lower balances and the aging of your credit history."

 

and it has shown a 200 pt increase over a 24 month period of time


Starting Score: 377EQ/350EX/400TU As of 11/2011
Current Score: 620EQ/614EX/612TU As of 01/2013
Goal Score: 700+ across the boards

Re: "Guesstimate" my score increase

If that late is your only late, then I'd say 35-45 points.
 
Utilization - maybe 30 points. I would guess more of an increase if you had another CC reporting. However, it is possible you'd get an increase by adding 1 more CC (aside from the utilization).
 
Judgment - only a guess, but I'd say less than 10 points if not removed, but paid.

a.) should help some since it's recent
b.) this will give you the most points back
c.) paying a public record or collection will not improve your FICOs
 
My guess is a sizable increase in points...I would not be surprised if you score improves to 620-640
Credit Profile -
FICO 08 Scores (11-08-2014): EQ 818, EX 817, TU 822
All three scores were 850. Lost points for not having an open installment TL. So, BE WARNED!!!!!

I'll play.  I'd guess that if all 3 things you mentioned are done, you'll end up somewhere between 610-630.
 
Editing my guess since Fused mentioned paying off judgement won't affect socres. Didn't realize that they were not factored into utilization.

C.) paying the PR will not help his scores unless it's deleted
